COMING AND GOING — Cashtown’s DJ Cool leaves the batter’s box as teammate Simeon Davis (4) scores a run on a squeeze bunt during Game 1 of the South Penn League championship series against Hanover on Thursday. The Pirates downed the Raiders, 9-2.

For four innings, Hanover’s Jon Karlheim was able to lock up Cashtown’s high-powered offense and the lanky right-hander carried a one-run lead into the bottom of the fifth.

That’s when the Pirates’ offense exploded, scoring eight times over their final two turns at bat and went on to a 9-2 victory over the Raiders in Game 1 of the best-of-five South Penn League championship series Thursday evening at the Cashtown Fire Department.
